I admit it sounds crazy but if you checkout satelite images taken over the last 10 years the stream is losing strength. You also have to take into account the amount of melting going on up on the north pole introducing huge amounts of fresh water into the flow. Fresh water is lighter than seawater ....

Gulf stream stopped!

We are all aware of how early the snow has arrived this year, why's that then? You are all aware of the oil spill in the gulf last summer, and the way the oil seemed to just disapear so quickly. 4.9 million (Wikipedia estimate) barrels of oil cant just dissapear, the oil is still there but its now o...

Some disturbing reading. Especially westy's report of what sounds like a tumor on a fish, cod that are white etc. Maintenance and aggregate dredging are carried out on a regular basis throughout the year in the Thames; for example the Princes Channel dredge, which was a six mile dredge carried out i...

you need to put plenty bait elastic round them as they soak up a fair bit of mackerel oil and expand a fair bit lol, you can thread a few up your line with a bait needle too.

I have read a few articles concerning these cut up seals.The photo in the earlier link looks like a very clean cut but how does a wind turbine manage to do this? The blades are above water level. A bit of googling revealed this. Twin screw trailing suction hopper dredgers. I think this is probably w...

The first bollard is about 2/3 the way along. I have been told this morning that the mod warning signs have been put back, some of the anglers that regularly fish the pier removed them. That could spell trouble.

Try and find or make a rig that will have enough feathers evenly spaced out so that you have feathers from bottom to top of water, that way mackerel cruising by will probably see one/some of them. Small hooks with small holographic tinsel do a good job of imitating bait fish.
